A London, Ont., judge has found a police officer guilty in the death of a First Nations woman who died shortly after being arrested.
London police Const. Nicholas Doering was found guilty of criminal negligence causing death and failing to provide the necessaries of life to Debra Chrisjohn, 39, of Oneida of the Thames First Nation.
Chrisjohn was high on meth when Doering arrested her on Sept. 7, 2016, after being called for a report of a woman running in the middle of the street and trying to get into cars. Chrisjohn was also wanted on an outstanding Ontario Provincial Police warrant for breaching the terms of a release from custody.
